WRAPUP: We had a lineup of 9 MINIs participating in the parade on a beautiful July 4th morning. All the MINIs were shined up, decorated and ready to go. The parade route was packed with kids hoping for candy and toys. A fun time was had by all.

There are many cool extras and features on the Chicago MINI Motoring Club website that you may or may not know about. Check out these special features to maximize your enjoyment of our club.
WRAPUP: The sunny weather held out just long enough to last the morning drive. A group of 9 MINIs headed down Sheridan Road and Lake Shore drive to meet up with another 10 MINIs at the official starting location. A fun drive through some nice urban roads.. A few groups of MINIs got a bit lost, crossed paths a few times and eventually joined together and found the right way to the end. Several people stayed for breakfast and visting afterwards!!
As usual, send links of photos to email@example.com and I will put them here to share.

Not an official Club event, but a number of people will be meeting up at the Portillos in Schaumburg on the first Wednesday of each month in the summertime. This is a great chance to hang around for an evening, kick tires, have some good food, and socialize with MINI friends.
Wrapup: Great weather, fun drive, good eats, and a cool destination!! We had a dozen MINIs and a bunch of dogs take a short trip out to Raceway Woods. There was one long pause for a slow moving freight train where we had a chance to pull over, take pictures and chat before the road opened up again. Burgers, brats, and side dishes were the food of the day, and people had a chance to explore the remnants of a very cool race track.
Send links of pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them here.
